We just discovered a fantastically simple tutorial for making your own dishwasher detergent cubes – and had to share. What’s astonishing is that it requires only four simple, inexpensive ingredients: Washing Soda, Epsom salt, Borax and lemon juice. Not only is it easy, but I’m expecting that this could save money as the ingredients are relatively inexpensive.
This ingredient combo avoids the use of more intense toxic chemicals and according to the creators of the recipe, they haven’t had any problems with scaly white buildup that may be attributed to phosphates that are present in many dishwashing soaps.
Here is the link to the full tutorial: http://www.louises-country-closet.com/2013/03/homemade-dishwasher-detergent-cubes.html
ps. One last note from us – if you are going to use ice cube trays for this, be sure that they will not be used afterwards for ice cubes – as traces of borax etc might remain. Mark them clearly with a sharpie or something so that someone doesn’t use them for ice without knowing.
